policy change. let's not go crazy. paul ryan and the young guns could lead a panel called 40 is the new 18 about how we could lift the voting age from 18 to 40. problem solved. i got lots of great ideas. if you invited me to come, i would be delighted to share them with you. i would love to be there. sa while i'm joking, they are totally serious. rather than change their message and adjust to the changing demographics, the republican party has apparently decided their best bet is to rig the electoral game. to paraphrase "the gamble qugame all losers they yell deal the cards again. let's not let them. that does it for us. martin bashir, it is all yours. >> i agree entirely. it's thursday, january 17th, and the president's first task is to keep america's children safe, so who could possibly disagree with that. >> there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of the tyrannical all-out assault on liberty. >> is there now an obligation to ban motorcycles, bicycles, knives, et cetera? >> i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of
that might not have been done last time. and paul ryan has the sort of, these are not the androids you're looking for, this will allow it to be your principle -- they just convince them -- over the course of a couple of days that they will have three p yiv points, they will be able to say the onus is on the president to pass the budget. the first time they were able to look reasonable since 2009. they brought them around on it. they're asking for a nearly clean extension. i was talking to a john boehner spokesperson after this was presented and we were asking, didn't the boehner rule say we need cuts for every dollar of debt limit increase? he said well, the boehner rule is cuts versus reform. they're trying to sell that is not backing away from what they did before, but it kind of -- kind of is. >> it does seem like it kind of is, but going three months into the future, let's say you get the budgets passed. you have two other moments for fiscal showdown, you have the spending sequester, cuts to defense and then the spending programs. you have continuing resolution, which funds the gov
for average americans right now. >> thank you, both. >>> next, paul ryan says no to the people devastated by hurricane sandy. what a guy. stay with us. >> if the nra's got a list that obama for america has a bigger list. and it is time to get activated. ♪ [ male announcer ] when these come together, and these come together, one thing you can depend on is that these will come together. delicious and wholesome. some combinations were just meant to be. tomato soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. at liberty mutual insurance, we understand. that's why our auto policies come with accident forgiveness if you qualify, where your rates won't go up due to your first accident, and new car replacement, where, if you total your new car, we give you the money for a new one. call... to talk to an insurance ex
with you. call now to request your free decision guide. >>> just a few hours ago paul ryan claimed to have the solution to our debt ceiling impasse. he calls it a short-term debt limit extension. you may know it better as kicking the can down the road. which reminds me, there was someone just a few months ago who was famously against that kind of a deal. who was it? >> kick the can. kick the can. kick the can. >> right, of course. that's who it was. joining us is jonathan alter and jared bernstein. welcome to you both. john, we've seen speaker boehner's power getting weaker and weaker. is paul ryan now the de facto head of the gop? >> well, you know, actually, martin, i think he has been much more influential than people realize -- >> because he's been quite quiet publicly. >> going back to 2011. he has so much respect within that republican caucus. he's the guy who killed simpson/bowl simpson/bowles. he was on the simpson/bowles commission and wasn't willing to have any revenue increases. his fingerprints were not on it. and then when it came to the grand bargain, he told john boehner wai
. that's what happened with the fiscal cliff. chris: who are they? >> well people like paul ryan who said i wasn't elected to come here just to stand in the way of everything. there are republicans who want to do serious things. on debt. on immigration. they know that the party has a huge problem with hispanics that they have to fix. >> and the other flip side of this is you've been hearing some paranoia from republicans is another way you can crack the republican party or split them is by forcing them to take those things like taxes, and then perhaps leading to a primary challenge for those republicans who voted in favor of higher taxes. chris: somebody on the hard right then? >> as we saw in recent elections democrats have a pretty good track record in general elections against some of these fringe candidates. chris: well said. >> chuck hagel. big discussions. unlike with susan rice where she hung fire for weeks and was dropped, or she dropped herself, this time he stuck with hagel after all the heat against him on -- some from the gays and the left and the neo-cons and where is he head
's your thoughts on this? we've seen paul ryan, marco rubio extend a hand to president obama so to speak and suggest they are ready to talk about immigration reform. what's the biggest hurdle here? >> well, i think the biggest hurdle in the end is going to be politics, of course, but the issue of citizenship. what marco rubio outlined this week and last weekend is very close to what president obama talked about in 2011. and so i think that will provide some cover for other republicans. when you've got someone like marco rubio, a rising star in the party, paul ryan, saying we're ready to do a deal here, but the devil is in the details as they always say. democrats feel very emboldened on this issue, and they're going to sort of, you know, swing for the fences. they want full legal status, including citizenship for undocumented immigrants and it's not clear how far republicans will go to do that. >> scott, it is clear that they're listening because senator rubio had before only supported very small steps in the immigration reform debate, a series of small bills. he did not want a big sweep
that fight? >> when do you stop doing that. >> can you come up with a budget? paul ryan couldn't come up with one. >> well paul ryan did pass a budget in the house. where we have passed a budget is in the united states senate controlled by democrats for over three years. >> right. >> so what we need, what we need to use the debt ceiling moment as, is a moment to educate the american public about all the deficit spending. the fact that we blew through a $2.1 billion increase in the debt ceiling in just seven months. we blew through it in 17 months. we have got to start bringing, reducing spending reducing the -- >> the debt ceiling is a a technicality. you're talking about the budget, you're talking about federal spending. let me show you a piece of the "wall street journal" and get your comment. they said you can't take a hostage you aren't prepared to shoot. i don't want to ask you about hostages and shooting. i want to ask you a question in a different way. do you understand that the consequence or what the consequences are of the u.s. even technically defaulting on its financial oblig
the handwriting on the wall. when you look at these bipartisan votes, you have paul ryan voting for higher taxes. you have both ryan and rubio voting for immigration reform now. and i think you're going to see enough votes in the center to raise the debt ceiling without any kind of -- chris: are they jumping shark on this? >> i think so. i think the public is certainly sick of it. and i also think the business community doesn't want to hear anything about shutting down the government. chris: you're the expert. i real me mean this. people advise me on making financial decisions. they think the economy looks pretty good. don't mess it up. >> it does look pretty good, as best we can tell. the one thing to remember is it's not just the debt ceiling. it's these automatic cuts that are scheduled to take place march 189 the debt ceiling isn't their only opportunity to try to get the president to agree to cuts. there are looming deadlines. so i think the republicans will get obama to agree to some cuts, even if we don't have a really economically damaging showdown. chris: how are we going to deal to ent
and described as reckless and irresponsible and unworkable. >> paul ryan, the powerful chairman of the house committee and former g.o.p. vice presidential nominee said all options clouding prioritization remain on the table. ryan suggest itig the divided government and gridlock if the long-term deal is achievable it will take time to negotiate it. failing that, toomey and ryan said it's the only available course. >> bret: is it tough to do? if you have the law in place is it tough for budget folks to implement it? >> very tough. no president wants to give up flexibility. president wants the white house back. they don't want the hands tied by congress if the shoe is on other foot. >> bret: thank you. >> some people brought you obamacare want to control what you hear about it on the news. up next, obamacare was intended to get more people on health insurance. is it already costing you money this or even your job in that's next. fficiently absorbedl continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release.
everything hostage. i saw paul ryan wins and say he is not going to use that word. >> the nonprofit that was launched today, organizing for action, i spoke with jim messina, a few minutes ago about it. it plans to bring the president's second term agenda forward. what can you tell me about the president's plan to take his goods agenda on the road campaign style? >> reporter: well, i can tell you, craig that, according to senior administration officials the president and vice president will be hitting the road in the days and weeks after the inauguration to sell their proposal for stiffer gun laws and gun safety package. it's a strategy they feel has been successful in the past. they used it during the fiscal cliff fight, the student loan debate and they feel it's a way to rally the american public on their side and to pressure congress to act. it has been successful in the past, will it be in this instance? of course, that is a big question mark. this is a very controversial issue. but the polls show that the president has the majority of america on his side. the wall street journal
exactly what paul ryan and mitt romney and other republicans have been shouting. keep up the message as much as you can. i hope you have finally gotten through a tube of thick heads. and, yes, this is obama's fualt, not bush. he should be urging congress people to do whatever they can to reduce spending. we are on the verge of exploding. i believe obama is getting a pass on the responsibility. paul ryan's plan, if it had been pushed through, how would it have affected the financial condition of this country? thank you. guest: thank you. chairman paul ryan, the chairman of the house budget committee, has had budget the last seniors. if they had been implemented fully, what would happen is we would not have a balanced budgets. that's a dream that those of us who wanted 25 years ago, have admitted cannot be done in a short time. what it would have done would be to reduce the increase of our debt and it would have made our debt rise by a smaller margin than the increase in our gross domestic product. that's all we want. we want to stabilize this debt somewhere around 60% of gdp. that's a
that report. >>> they may end up rivals in 2016 but congressman paul ryan said he supports the immigration plan of marco rubio when the party is in need of support of the latino community and one of those things we thought you should know. >>> plus, here's the question -- should the justice department sue lance armstrong to get back sponsorship money? we are talking nearly $100 million. [ male announcer ] ahh... retirement. sit back, relax, pull out the paper and...what!!?? an article that says a typical family pays $155,000 in "wall street" fees on their 401(k)s? seriously? seriously. you don't believe it? search it, "401k 155k." then go to e-trade. and roll over your old 401(k)s to a new e-trade retirement account. we have every type of retirement account. none of them charge annual fees, and all of them offer low cost investments. why? because we're not your typical wall street firm, that's why. so you keep more of your money. e-trade. less for us. more for you. >>> nate said, right after ben died, he said -- this is tough, but he said, you promised you would protect us. >> yeah. >> and
. paul ryan, where are you? we need more spending cuts, more entitlement reform and even some tax reform especially business tax cuts to spur economic growth. my two cents. here is an old friend, david walker, founder, president and ceo of the come back america initiative. he knows a lot about this. david, let me ask you this. is boehner wrong to insist that a dollar debt increase should be accompanied by a spending decrease? >> the fact is we need to pay our bills. and i do however think that we have a spending problem. the federal government has gone from being 2% of the economy, 100 years ago. to 24% today. headed to 37% by 2040 absent a change in course. the republicans ought to leverage the sequester and the c.r. not to shut down the government, but we need to reduce spending. we also have to keep in mind if you try to hold the debt ceiling hostage, social security is negative cash flow. therefore, that means you could face a situation where the social security checks don't go out on time. the last time we faced that, it was 1983. and that was the only reason we got reforms. that wo
in the country. congressman paul ryan is weighing in. he wrote this on his facebook page. senator rubio is exactly right on the immediate to fix our broken immigration system. i support the principle he's outlined. modernization of our immigration law, stronger security to curb illegal immigration and respect important the rule of law in addressing the complex challenge of the undocumented population. eagerness to jump onboard is bipartisan. majority leader harry reid describing the prospects for immigration reform in the months ahead. >> it is going to be first thing on our agenda. the -- majority, every senate, lists their top ten items. immigration is the number one item. we are going to do immigration. they are now -- agreed tentatively on a path of citizenship which is the big stumbling block. we may be able to come up with a bipartisan bill quicker than you think. >> it is going to move fast. bottom line big deals happening in congress on a bipartisan basis when there are people on both sides who stand to benefit. in this case republicans in congress and republicans nationally imm
but they admit that they've got work to do. paul ryan described it best when they said one of the things we're discussing is the fact that we control the house they control the white house especially following the results of the november election. >> it sounds like they're changing the tone a little bit. >> this was really important for the house republicans because they didn't do this when it came to them coming into power after two years ago when they took back control in 2010. so it helped for john boehner to get his troops in line and to get the conservative groups onboard with the budget proposal and to get that messaging across, very simple line. no budget, no pay, right? it's tweetable. it's something that they can get republicans, tea party republicans all onboard behind that and be united in a way that you haven't seen so far over the last few years. >> it's also one of the messages that will resonate with folks in this country who hear we'll stop paying them? we dislike them anyway? we should cut their pay? >> with all of the talk with republicans being in control with most of the
additional cost to the taxpayer. and that's just crazy. >> when you say cave, are you talking about paul ryan who says maybe what we should do is increase the debt ceiling for the short-term? >> no, actually, i think that's a bad approach. because we just lurch from crisis to crisis. the paul ryan budget that the house passed with basically every single republican except for, i think, two, that would require in its own terms an increase in the debt ceiling of $1.5 trillion in two years. the budget they voted for requires the debt ceiling to be raised. and now when the time comes to avoid default, they don't want to do it. but i think what you're seeing is speaker boehner knows this isn't a viable tactic. i think mr. ryan knows it's not a viable tactic. but there's a lot in the republican conference that continue to see this doomsday kind of approach as a viable approach. and i think that cooler heads are starting to prevail on the republican side. and that's a good thing. >> and you are part of this no labels coalition wanting to reach across the aisle. but let me read to you what david brook
app the federal level. paul ryan is back in congress and sponsored another fetus personhood bill. this even after his latest attempt died in the house in 2011 and an oklahoma supreme court struck down a similar initiative in 2012. oklahoma that bahsian of liberalism. the court there called that bill clearly underconstitutional, because it blocks a woman's legal right to have an abortion. joining me now from washington is nancy keenan, the president of naral pro-choice america. nancy, especially now so glad to have you back inside "the war room." >> great to see you, and thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you bet as ever. let me start with the policy stuff. what are you most concerned about federal or state laws at the moment restricting rights? >> it's both. the u.s. house of rent is full of anti-choice politicians that are hell bent on denying women's rights. so the battle is at all fronts and i think the most critical to all of this is we have to make sure that we elect and defeat anti-choice politicians and elect pro choice politicians to stop this nonsens
. we have put particular is down as republicans. host: so the specifics are in the paul ryan plan? guest: they are. host: jeff is in florida. caller: hi. good morning, america. i look at problems and a simple level. use it the solutions solve more than one problem. when we have 45 million lost jobs, the budget goes up. when we have 3% unemployment, your budget goes down. the american people do not know they could add to their everyday life simple things and each time america works together as a team, they can knock off one day of that $4 billion a day that we're spending. everybody hang a sign -- "turn off hot water heater." "turned on hot water heater" in the morning. that will save every american family $30 a month. guest: that is common sense. i like common sense. part of what we get out of this is to grow our economy. we are americans. putting capital at risk and finding new ways to create goods and services that people wante. i introduced the mid-atlantic jobs act 2012. it opens up coastal virginia energy for energy exploration and harvesting. it would create 18,000 jobs. we'
: this is on the heels of white house telling paul ryan it won't meet a budget deadline. 1300 days we still don't a budget. he is saying i've been busy. sorry, i wouldn't get to the budget thing. as i mentioned in the "a" block, president obama said newtown, connecticut, was the hardest day of his presidency. we sat around for a week and not only us but others saying we need to do something. the approach i would have suggested, is to try to figure out a way to make some of this bipartisan at the outset and do the executive orders on the back end of that effort. instead he put the cart in front of the horse, now the horse won'tbe go anywhere. >> andrea: he hasn't cut spending at all. it's not even on the radar screen. >> eric: i don't think this is a distraction. this is an important time, not only in the legacy but america. he said, here i come. get ready, ready to fundamentally transform america. this was right before he started in 2009. october of 2008. rahm emanuel said don't let a good tragedy go to waste because you can do things to fundamentally transform america. he is taking the tragedy

obama, paul ryan. and, today, a seminar titled a discussion on successful communication with minorities and women. and who did they recruit to teach those house republicans all about the world of minorities and women? three white men. i'm serious. half of the panel on how to talk to women and minorities was made up of white men. you can't make this stuff up. these republicans still don't know how to talk to women? seriously? it's the gop's theme song. "it's raining men. come on, don't be such a wall flou ere, speaker boehner. don't be afraid. just go out and give it a shot. go out and ask for a dance. >>> listen, folks, tips on how to talk to women and minorities aren't going to do any good if they don't change their policies. they can't just talk the talk, they're going to have to walk the walk. and until republicans keep changing their policies, they'll keep striking out. joining me now is political columnist for "the washington post." >> thank you, reverend. >>> margie, do republicans think they can learn to sweet talk women and minorities to win their support? >> they certainly have

is planning to go we note former vice presidential candidate, paul ryan, has said he sees that as his obligation to go. of course, i mentioned the leadership, folks like speaker boehner and minority leader mitch mcconnell, they will all be there. let's listen to what republican senator from wyoming, john bar ras, so he told candy this morning about how he is coming. >> as they might stay in wyoming this is not your first rodeo this inaugural? >> no, candy. this is actually the ninth time i'm seeing a different president come into office. my dad took me to john kennedy's inauguration when i was 8. we come every time, republican and democrat, because of this great country. >> reporter: it is important and we will be watching to see how many of the rank and file republican does show up, don. >> so, athena, let's go back four years ago. did john mccain attend anything last time in 2009? >> reporter: did. he attended the inaugural ceremony. he was also at the luncheon that follows the inaugural ceremony here in the capitol, in statuary hall, and not uncommon to see certainly a senator. if
a comprehensive immigration reform. paul ryan, no dummy on this issue, having run as mitt romney's running mate, is coming out in support of the rubio plan. will they be able to get the party extremists to embrace what they're proposing, whatever that is? >> that's such a great question. i think -- i have yet to see really marco rubio's proposal in writing. he has been talking about some concepts, whether, you know, he supports some aspects of immigration reform, but i think i would rather wait until he has something in writing, which i have yet to see. there is some problem. for example, in the house los angeles times has been reporting on this. we at telemundo report on it quite frequently. there is a small group of democrats and republicans working together to try and reach some bipartisan agreement on comprehensive immigration reform. let's remember that the 11 million people that are here illegally aren't just latinos. there are some aryan blonde, blue-eyed people that are undocumented. it's not just a latino issue, my friend. they're not just young. they're working on it. i think that the
